Pros

If you have no marketable skills, artistic talent, almost made it through the local Community College but do have world class brown-nosing skills then this place is your El Dorado. They will probably be out of business soon so this may be irrelevant, but don't expect any promotions or raises here based on performance. These things are gauged strictly by who takes the owner and his closest boot lickers to lunch, loses money to them at poker night and tells them how smart they are. The best thing about this place is not working there anymore.

Cons

They say they "Work Hard and Play Hard" but it's hard to get any real work done there when you've got a company so bloated with incompetent "leads" and "managers" who spend most of their time justifying their titles by lining up to kiss the owner's shoes. This place is run like North Korea: a small talentless group of brown nosers surround a leader and tell him how brilliant he is while the company rots away. If not for the housing bubble this place would've collapsed long ago.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

They wouldn't listen to anyone while we still worked there, let's not kid ourselves that they would now. The problem is that they started to believe their own PR about how they are a leader in the industry despite all evidence to the contrary.

    Pros

    Family atmosphere yet professional. Owners truly care about their employees.

    Cons

    Not as many opportunities to gather and interact on a social level due to current economy and workloads. Everyone is busy getting the work out the door which is a good problem to have, but it also means less time to catch up with coworkers.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Keep up the good work.

    Looks like a great company from the outside, but it's a dysfunctional family on the inside.

    Pros

    This company was founded on strong principles including creativity, work-life balance and the work hard play hard mentality. In good financial times, the company sponsored poker tournaments, snowboarding trips and casino nights. The kitchen was stocked with complimentary food for the employees including lunchmeat, bread, cereal, juice and eggs. There was a foozball table, X-Box room, board games and basketball hoop. It was definitely a fun place to work.

    Cons

    The management is very poor. Managers were promoted based on their time spent with the company and their friendship with the owners. Newer, more ambitious managers from other industries are not given a chance to shine and are held down and discouraged to grow. Senior managers are intimidated of change and fresh talent. New talent is put in their place by not being allowed to handle large accounts and shine. In additon, current senior management's refusal to grow or change creates strained client relationships.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Senior Management should not be afraid to hear what their employees are trying to say. Don't interpret comments regarding change as being criticism or negative. People who come forward and report mis-management issues should not be reprimanded. Everyone wants this to be the great place to work that outsiders think it is. If the owners could stop and really take a closer look at the real problems, the company would be a greater success.
